Traditional MBA


The Traditional MBA program delivers an advanced management education geared towards recent graduates and early career starters (with limited to no professional work experience). 

Delivered in a face-to-face format, the on-campus Traditional MBA provides an encouraging environment where young professionals learn to extend their leadership capabilities and prepare to accelerate their careers with a competitive advantage. Students take the Traditional MBA courses taught by FAU's world-class faculty and can enroll as either full-time or part-time status in any given semester. 

Traditional MBA students gain broad managerial skills and can also develop specialized expertise in a business discipline that best suits their career aspirations. 

Students can customize their MBA experience by choosing from more than 70 graduate business elective course with two options: 

  1. Take an interdisciplinary approach by selecting electives from more than one area
  2. Select all elective credits from a single area as a specialized concentration (Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Health Administration, Information Systems, International Business, Marketing, and Operations Management)

Concentration elective availabilty can vary.  Speak with an academic advisor for assistance planning electives.
